It should be interesting to see what the commenters say.
I notice that one comment points out that Streicher was executed for incitement to violence. If I was a judge, I am sure that I would have strongly considered executing such a loathsome toad. On the other hand, he had been out of power for years - prior to 1939. Perhaps he should have gotten the same treatment as Rudolf Hess, namely life in prison.
I am not going to shed tears for this waste of a human life, but it is an interesting question if you really take an absolutist view of the values incorporated into the First Amendment, such as letting Nazis march in towns where Holocaust survivors live or not preventing the publication of plans for building a nuclear weapon.
